Laura Brown: We're baking the cake to show him that we love him.
Richie Brown: Otherwise he won't know we love him?
Laura Brown: That's right.

Just wait till I die. Then you'll have to think of yourself. How are you going to like that?

Richard Brown

I've been attended by doctors, who inform me OF MY OWN INTERESTS.

Virginia Woolf

[in 1921]
Virginia Woolf: [writing in her book] Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself.
[in 1951]
Laura Brown: [reading in bed] Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself.
[in 2001]
Clarissa Vaughan: Sally, I think I'll buy the flowers myself.
[waking up]
Sally Lester: What? What flowers?
[realizing]
Sally Lester: Oh, shit! I forgot!

Clarissa Vaughn: He gives me that look.
Julia: What look?
Clarissa Vaughn: To say your life is trivial. You are so trivial.

The thought of this life, that's what kept me going. I had an idea of our happiness.

Dan Brown

Leonard, I believe I may have a first sentence.

Virginia Woolf

I don't think two people could have been happier than we've been.

Richard Brown

I don't know what's happening to me. I seemed to be unraveling.

Clarissa Vaughn

Clarissa Vaughn: You do have good days still. You know you do.
Richard Brown: Not really. I mean, it's kind of you to say so, but it's not really true.

But if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I choose death.

Virginia Woolf

This is my right; it is the right of every human being. I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs, but the violent jolt of the Capital, that is my choice. The meanest patient, yes, even the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity. I wish, for your sake, Leonard, I could be happy in this quietness.
